Private Investigator Liz Talbot thinks she’s seen another ghost when she meets Calista McQueen. She’s the spitting image of Marilyn Monroe. Born precisely fifty years after the ill-fated star, Calista’s life has eerily mirrored the late starlet’s—and she fears the looming anniversary of Marilyn’s death will also be hers.
Before Liz can open a case file, Calista’s life coach is executed. Suspicious characters swarm around Calista like mosquitoes on a sultry lowcountry evening: her certifiable mother, a fake aunt, her control-freak psychoanalyst, a private yoga instructor, her peculiar housekeeper, and an obsessed ex-husband. Liz digs in to find a motive for murder, but she’s besieged with distractions. Her ex has marriage and babies on his mind. Her too-sexy partner engages in a campaign of repeat seduction. Mamma needs help with Daddy’s devotion to bad habits. And a gang of wild hogs is running loose on Stella Maris.
With the heat index approaching triple digits, Liz races to uncover a diabolical murder plot in time to save not only Calista’s life, but also her own.
Lowcountry Bombshell is a part-romance, part-mystery novel that oozes southern charm and quirkiness. It is the second book in the Liz Talbot Mystery series by Susan M. Boyer. Filled with interesting characters, a sassy protagonist who communicates with the dead, a Marilyn Monroe doppelganger, and a 'whodunit' mystery to solve, this is definitely one book you won't want to miss. I know that I certainly enjoyed reading Boyer's book after a long and tedious day at work. I would grab a glass of wine, find a cozy spot, and settle in to read all about Liz, Nate, Colleen and Calista - it was the highlight of my day!
After all who doesn't enjoy a well written mystery filled with crazy and suspicious characters - I know that I certainly do. I found myself easily transported to the fictionalized island of Stella Maris and following Liz along her new adventure of solving her latest case - preventing the impending death of Calista McQueen, the Marilyn Monroe look-a-like. With loads of distractions threatening to throw a wrench in her plans - both personal and professional - Liz has a LOT to deal with in Lowcountry Bombshell. Oh, and did I mention the wild hogs running loose on the island - what else can go wrong!
So, if you are looking for a fun and engaging read with an element of mystery and romance, then pick up a copy of Susan M. Boyer's latest book, Lowcountry Bombshell: A Liz Talbot Mystery. Believe me, you won't be disappointed.
